Some of the healthiest breakfasts around the world could pass for dinner in America. Lots of a variety of cooked veggies, fresh salad, whole grains, fish, eggs, olives, and fruit are the staple. A healthy breakfast will lift the metabolism and support the firing up of the body’s systems. Skipping it will stress the thyroid, adrenals, pancreas, and the brain to name a few. Studies show that blood sugar can get out of whack, take most of the day to balance, and a person will end up consuming more calories. The digestive system likes whole food for more fiber. Unfortunately, the Standard American diet relies on processed foods and sugar, which makes one tired, and be starving in a few hours. Considering we need 13 cups of fruits and veggies of all colors every day in our diet, focus on getting more, including greens for breakfast. Here is a list of some common American breakfast fare, and healthy swaps. In the interest of space, click on asterisked items if you want the recipes.
